6:02 am
damaged, more than 2,000 homes and structures are threatened. it reached the pacific coast highway, which was shut down twice yesterday. the fire only 10% contained. the fires are burning about 50 miles from los angeles. the fire in the jurupa valley destroyed a couple of homes there. cbs reporter edward lawrence has been keeping an eye on the latest developments throughout the night and he joins us with more. >> reporter: good morning. the fire grew 2,000 acres overnight. as you said, 10,000 acres. only 10% contained. now that the sun is coming up, take a look at that hill. when we first arrived here about 6 hours ago, the fire was just at the top of the ridge. now you can see that it's pretty much burned the entire mountain there. there are 1,000 firefighters that were over there trying to contain that fire but they just were not able to do it overnight. the overnight hours brought little relief for firefighters battling the springs fire near
6:03 am
camarillo, california. the blaze has burned thousands of acres and is still growing. >> just getting very close, the fire. >> we are just hoping everything will be okay. >> reporter: strong santa ana winds are pushing the flames, which have now crested a ridge and made its way down to california's famed pacific coast highway. >> we have the highway as a good natural fire break and obviously the pacific ocean so right now what we want people to do is to recognize the evacuation orders. >> reporter: thousands have been evacuated as firefighters set backfires hoping to control the burn, clear out brush and save home. >> trying to get this buffer in so that we have some defensible black here to stop the fire. can't come up and threaten these homes. >> reporter: a storage tank of tonguesic pesticides exploded when the fire overtook a farm. officials issued an air quality warning and evacuated. area. it took hazmat hours to bring the threat from the burning chemicals under control. california is giving firefighters at the camarillo command center a lot of manpower and resources to put out the fire and save homes. but this isn't the only wildfire raging in the state
6:04 am
right now. >> now we're looking at the living room. >> reporter: at least two homes were destroyed in a blaze near banning, california, in riverside counted. that fire has been burning for two days and is at 40% containment. >> i think we may be looking at a significant fire season. >> reporter: officials say the lack of rain and snow this winter combined with an early appearance of those santa ana winds means it's likely to be a long season for firefighters. now, when the sun set, the fire crews grounded the planes for safety reasons. now that the sun has come up or is coming up any minute now, they will take off with the helicopters and tankers to hit that fire from the air. again, fire crews worked throughout the night trying to contain it into a box there. they were not able to do that. so they are going to try to hit it from the air hopefully before the winds pick up. live in camarillo, california, edward lawrence, back to you. >> you mentioned the wind. what is it like right now? >> the winds actually -- the
6:05 am
breezes just now started. there is a red flag warning so the winds are supposed to be very gusty here today possibly into the 30-mile-per-hour range. one concern is the shift in winds. overnight the winds were blowing out towards the ocean in that direction. now you can see behind me the smoke is coming back this way so they are worried that that would push the fire back towards the populated area. >> not an easy firefight. edward lawrence live in ventura county thank you for the latest. >> live pictures there. boy, what a mess. that wind coming off the ocean means we're cooling down. tough news down there. >> hot in spots around the bay area. red flag warnings down in the bay area. weather improves for us. down in the valleys back up in the 80s and 90s. along the coastline we'll see the sea breeze kicking in. a cool 49 degrees along the coastline in pacifica. 58 in san francisco. 61 vallejo. 60 degrees in mountain view. high pressure showing signs of
6:06 am
weakening but only slowly. hot away from the immediate coastline but eventually this low is going to drop back down into the bay area bringing with it some cooler air, clouds and maybe even a couple of sprinkles, too. looks like finally seeing relief at the coastline but still staying hot inland. yesterday we had some records up in the 80s and even the 90s today slightly cooler inland 929 in livermore not much cooling but in san francisco down about 13 degrees and sea breeze kicks in. about 75 and looks like much cooler over the weekend. more on the weekend forecast. let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> reporter: things are quiet but some of our hot spots and some of our slower spots are beginning to back up. so let's go flying with our chopper 5 -- videogame version of chopper 5. you can see some slowing right there. it looks like from "a" street to loveridge. that's when we start to see things improve after that loveridge exit towards willow pass coming into concord. so typical stuff there and

6:10 am
>> the game is beautiful. i had no doubt about it. warriors all the way. what do you think? >> awesome. >> awesome. >> reporter: all eyes were on point guard steph curry. sure, he had 7 turnovers but in the 3rd quarter he finished with 22 points, four three- pointers, and coach jackson says he couldn't be prouder. >> with steph, you know, when we were down in that first half, i pulled him aside and said there's going to be a point in this game where you're going to take over because you're the best player on the floor and what will happen is everybody else will follow. and sure enough, that's exactly what took place. >> reporter: only eight nba teams have come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a best-of-seven post-season series. and to sweeten it even more, this is the first time in 22 years the bay area's only nba team will advance to the second round.

6:15 am
aren't you sweet! licensed phone-ups available 24/7. call 1-800-progressive. a robbery at a gas station in australia almost ended in disaster. a couple getting gas was acting a little suspicious so the attendant approached the car. the driver panic, took off, while the woman was still getting gas. the hose became caught between the woman's legs, throwing her into the air. the fuel went everywhere as you can see in this video. it did not ignite. the bandit got away and guess she got right back up and took off. >> she got up and got if the car and got the heck out of there. wow, lucky, lucky. 6 n 15 right now. solar-powered airplane just took off moments ago for its first-ever trip across the united states. >> missed it by that much. let's go live to moffett field where kpix 5 reporter anne makovec watched the whole thing. >> reporter: this plane is now
6:16 am
about 3.5 minutes into its flight. you can see it there that line on the horizon. that plane is on its way to phoenix right now. the first cross-country flight of an all solar-powered plane. this is the helicopter with the second pilot flying on the other side. there's only one pilot inside the plane that you can see there. it took off again just about four minutes ago from moffett field. it's called solar impulse. this is video of its take-off. it gets all its energy from 12,000 solar cells on those huge wings. the plane took a trip around the bay area yesterday. it took off for a 19 hour flight. it will go an average 35 miles an hour. this is the first leg of its journey set to end in new york sometime in july. now the plane was born in switzerland. and i asked one of the pilots why do this historic flight here in the u.s.?
6:17 am
>> we started in europe but it's important to be here for different reason, that's the country where aviation started. i think both of us have been inspired by what's happened here in aviation but also for all the technologies which have been developed. in some ways it's to pay tribute to all the pilots who have inspired us. >> reporter: the solar cells on those wings gather enough power during the day to power an 881- pound lithium battery that can go all night. now, the pilot that is in the plane right now is actually not your average pilot. he is used to flying hot air balloons and he has flown one around the world. he is known for that. he is also a psychologist. not a person that you normally expect to be making an historic flight. but then again, there's really nothing usual about this flight. it is set to land in phoenix tomorrow at 1 a.m. live in moffett field, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> a first in many ways.
6:18 am
thank you. the 3500-pound aircraft has 12,000 solar cells which of course convert sunlight into battery power. next stop, arizona. >> hopefully everyone on the road is keeping their eyes straight ahead and not up to the sky there to see this plane. >> i know. it's been great. it's been quiet this morning. we got if the door and it was super busy because we had a big traffic alert in lafayette but since then, everything is moving for the most part at top speeds. some backups on 4, 580 but the bay bridge the usual delays. they turned on the metering lights after 6:00 so now we are backing up to the 880 overcrossing. but again, this is just kind of the usual commuter traffic at this time of the morning trying to get into the city. san mateo bridge though we'll show you where things are moving nicely westbound 92, 15 minutes. so this camera is just past the toll plaza. as you can see, it continues to move well all the way out towards the high-rise. let's check our maps and other
6:19 am
live traffic cameras to the south bay now. even up 101 in san jose lighter than normal coming into san jose from south san jose. our milpitas cam near 880 and 237, silicon valley commuters, westbound so far still in the green in the clear. that is a check of your "timesaver traffic." how hot are we going to get? let's ask lawrence, the expert. not as hot as yesterday but close in some spots. going to be hot inland again. we had lots of records yesterday. today probably not going to see that. outside, though, right now, how about the solar plane cruising out there? this is a day to fly a solar plane. you have plenty of sunshine outside and the winds fairly calm to start out the morning hours. but as we head throughout the days, the sea breeze likely to blow. and that is going to bring a change to our weather. around the bay area today, we'll notice some changes with the sea breeze kicking in a little bit earlier. so we'll begin to cool things down near the coastline and inside the bay. still staying hot inland and sunshine for everybody. then aing about-time cooling trend over the weekend with more clouds on the way and maybe even a couple of
6:20 am
raindrops the latter part of the weekend. high pressure weakening slowly here. you have this low that's eventually going to drop back toward the coastline and over the bay area. so it looks like today some milder weather in the afternoon. especially near the coastline and inside the bay. and then some much cooler temperatures in the latter half of the weekend. if you plan to head around the state it's going to be hot in the central valley. 93 in sacramento. 94 fresno. 92 redding today. about 69 degrees in lake tahoe but mostly sunny. around the bay we'll find temperatures soaring again into the 80s into san jose. 90s toward morgan hill. about 68 degrees in pacifica. east bay temperatures again on the hot side. up in the 90s in many spots there. but inside the bay you will notice that sea breeze kicking in throughout golden gate. cooling you off, tricky temperature in san francisco but we are going for 75 degrees. about 67 in daly city. how about this? cinco de mayo celebration should be beautiful this weekend. mostly sunny, but cooler outside. and yeah, looks like we have some changes coming our way. more clouds on the way and it looks like even a slight chance of sprinkles or light showers on sunday, monday and possibly
6:21 am
tuesday. could you do that dance again? >> no. >> as soon as i said cinco de mayo, you were just whooping it up here. [ laughter ] >> thanks, lawrence. >> if they only knew, lawrence. 6:21. we could find out today if the bay area will host super bowl l. the big decision that could clinch it. >> yes. plus, the surprise moment in the warriors game last night. how david lee's return to the court looked like history repeating itself. more on that coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:25 am
no one expected him to come back and he does ala willis reed in the nba finals. >> it was great. mark jackson obviously knows his nba history and it was a great time for the knicks. the first time they won an nba title. david lee only played 1:27 but he turned it around. he got the fans into it. >> do you think that was a strategic move on their part? >> absolutely. a mean, mark jackson knew it. he absolutely wanted to get him into the right time of the game. >> what gamesmanship. there was so much said after game five with, you know, tripping up steph and, you know, all the tough play that they were putting on him. so he said i got a little something in my back pocket and throws this at them. >> it was a great matchup for the warriors. losing david lee for most of the series helped the warriors because they had a faster line- up, they were able to outcoach, outmatch, outwit dinver. >> did it surprise you beat the nuggets? >> yes. i thought the nuggets would put up a little more fight. but they lost their best player so they couldn't match the
6:26 am
loss. >> game five was a physical game. what about game six? >> it wasn't nearly as physical. i think coach jackson made the comments about how they were putting out hitmen on steph curry and trying to intentionally injure him. he got fined by the league $25,000 but i think he made his point and he was able to influence the referees. >> now san antonio. here's a team that they haven't beaten since 1977. 29 straight losses. can they win one there? >> they will have to. i don't predict that happening. i hate to say it the warriors will lose this series in five games because they can't win in san antonio. >> you don't think so? san antonio is a tough team to beat. >> it is. they have a very veteran swat led by tim duncan,. >> you don't think the fans can push them over? >> it's possible but they need to win the game in san antonio. >> history says no but these fans are crazy. what a night last night.
6:27 am

the 1600 mark in response to the united states' adding some more jobs. and the jobless rate is now at a four-year low. here now is kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, michelle. good morning, frank. not only the s&p reaching into record territory like that. the dow approaching 15,000 for the first time. that april jobs report doing wonders for the stock market this morning. not only better-than-expected gain of 165,000 in april, but february and march were revised higher by a combined 114,000 jobs. the february gain of 332,000 was the biggest sense november of 2005. the unemployment rate down to 7.5%. that is the lowest since december of 2008. certainly good to see the job market continuing along at least on that path despite the federal sequester, which has had some impact on the economy. besides the stock market doing well, from that we had a lot of positive earnings news yesterday. one company that did not pleas

was linked n despite turning into a solid quarter, linkedin profit was up to $325 million. but the company provided weaker-than-expected guidance. and that is hitting shares this morning. but linkedin shares are up 75% since the beginning of the year. so not a huge surprise there would be some selling. let's check the numbers. they look good to close out the week. right now the dow up 156 points. only 13 shy of 15,000. nasdaq up 40. s&p up 18 at 1615. first time over 1500. linkedin down 8.5%. yelp down 1% but yesterday they rose 27% after its earnings report. frank and michelle, back to you. >> once again, i wish i had tomorrow's paper today. >> reporter: wouldn't that be handy? >> it would be. >> all right. kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks, thank you. have a great weekend. >> reporter: you, too. let's check the weather. >> got a chance to get to the
6:47 am
beach with my little girl yesterday. what a nice day. more of a westerly wind kicking in toward the beaches. so a sea breeze kicking in. hot inland for today but that sea breeze will strenthen toward the afternoon. then a cooling trend big time over the weekend with more clouds even a chance of a few sprinkles. for today, high pressure slowly weakening. see this low up to the north doesn't look like much. not much moisture associated with it but it will drag down in the bay area so it will change things for the weekend to bring with it some cooler air and clouds and a chance of a couple of light showers. milder afternoon near the coastline and by the bay, hot in the valleys. flying out of sfo a clear start with no weather delays reported there. across the country though we have a couple of spots into chicago. possibility of some thunderstorms, 68 degrees, sunny in new york and 70 in houston for today. around the bay today you will see sunshine all day long as high as 88 in san jose, 90 in
6:48 am
morgan hill. 60s into pacifica, much cooler there. 90s in the interior valleys. inside the bay sea breeze in the afternoon, 57 in san francisco. how about in the ballpark tonight, heading to the dodgers and giants game? mostly clear, about 65 degrees. next couple of days those temperatures cooling off, back to average and boy, a big cooldown toward monday and tuesday with a slight chance of sprinkles. let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> thanks, lawrence. we finally have a couple of new incidents coming in. if you are traveling down the eastshore freeway, we are beginning to see some delays now through berkeley. it's because of an accident westbound 80 approaching university. there was actually a concrete chunk in lanes so they cleared that but a couple of cars hit it and got flat tires. so again, we are beginning to see some brake lights westbound. also, coming into san jose, northbound 85 approaching almaden expressway, we have an accident just reported. no injuries, but it is involving a caltrans truck. and it is in the center divide. let's go outside, show you a live look in the east bay this
6:49 am
morning. this is 880 near hegenberger, where everything is so far still moving it the limit. same thing on westbound 580. we are starting to bunch up a little bit approaching the dublin interchange. but if we quickly go to our maps, westbound 580 coming out of the altamont pass, the drive time is actually lighter than normal still for this time of the morning. 29 minutes coming up over the altamont pass through the livermore valley and we are actually seeing one continuous line of brake lights now from 205 out of tracy all the way towards 680 in pleasanton. that's traffic. back to you guys. >> all right, elizabeth. thank you. feeling the pinch from sequestration now major security concerns with protecting the san francisco bay. >> kpix 5 political insider phil matier, congressman eric swalwell and former mayor willie brown join us live from caffe roma. the first question to congress swalwell, congress found the cash to put air traffic controllers back on the job. what are they doing about coast guard patrols around the area?
6:50 am
>> we need to end the sequestration. it left us more vulnerable. our bridges and tunnels are more vulnerable to attack. i have put in a request for increasing the transit security grant program so bart can protect its infrastructure as well as what we have in the bay area. >> you put that request in but the deal they are trying to push in washington is them a whole package. they want their tax increases, they want the cuts, they want the whole nine yards. that's the deal, right? it has to all be done. >> that is the problem with across-the-board cuts. when you make 10% across the board cuts, you don't cut some of the programs that need more than 10%. and then many of the programs that shouldn't be cut at all end up getting cut too much. so we have a lot of foolish spending but i think we can cut foolish spending without just foolishly cutting spending. let's go after agricultural subsidies. let's reduce our defense spending. >> with all due respect, eric, how can a freshman congressman think he can have any of that on any aspect of this? >> it takes a snowball to start an avalanche.
6:51 am
what i have been doing back there is working across the aisle. we formed a group called the united solution caucus, 30 members of the freshman class. we meet once a week evenly divided between democrats and republicans. >> sounds like the blue dogs. >> no, we have far left, far right and all we want to do is solve problems. >> republicans and democrats. >> republicans and democrats. >> where do you meet, in a bunk remember? >> we meet in a conference room. it gets heated at times. i think the fact that we're sitting down -- >> what's the leadership think of you getting together on the side? >> they are encouraging it. we heard at the doors we knocked on voters want us to come together. >> which one of those guys in the group is a spy for leadership? [ laughter ] >> if you don't know who the sucker in the room is, it might be you, right? [ laughter ] >> exactly. now, i have to ask you something. you're here this morning bright and early. we got to give him props for that. how often do you fly home from washington? >> every weekend? >> that comes with the job? every weekend you have to fly across the country? >> you can come home as often
6:52 am
as you like. i think it's a sacrifice to represent california and work in d.c. i knew what i was coming in. i'm on the committee of science and technology and homeland security. so i get to play a little offense on science and defense on homeland security. >> what can we get out of him? >> at this moment? >> yeah. >> answers to questions that a freshman -- [overlapping speakers] >> the optimism, i am impressed. >> you're talking offense and defense. [overlapping speakers] >> offense and defense. >> "super bowl l." it looks like we have a very good chance because things aren't so rosie in miami. >> the stadium is not good enough down in miami. what do you think about that? we get it in the bay area or what? >> we need to keep the warriors in the bay area. that's my goal. >> you're going for the warriors. he is not even talking super bowl.
